Based on strategies and technology, there is no doubt that the upcoming years are going to take a great leap in technology. The good thing is that our lives are being better as technology improves. So, what is in the upcoming year, let's go ahead and look at the stunning technologies.
1. Google Glass
Google Glass is a wearable, voice-controlled Android device that resembles a pair of eyeglasses and displays information directly in the user's field of vision. It offers its users an augmented reality experience by using visual, audio and location-based inputs to provide relevant information. Google Glass allows you to navigate all your social media feeds, Google maps, GPS, make calls, send texts, etc. In the current, the device is available for $1500 for developers, but you can expect an affordable consumer version in upcoming days.
2. Form 1
Finally, we are getting close to the 3D printing that every architect always wanted. Form 1, a prototype or a high resolution personal 3D printer have been amongst the highest quality object to come off as a 3D desktop printer. The cost of this manufacturer is $2799, that might sounds a little costlier to you, but when you have the luxury of printing your own prototypes, you will find it reasonable.
3. Oculus Rift
Virtual reality is the latest fantasy in the world of wearable technology. Designed in a precise way using with an incredibly wide field of view, high-resolution display, and ultra-low latency head tracking, VRs provide an immersive experience in which your head movements are tracked in 3D to facilitate high involvement while watching 3D movies and playing games.
The advanced device takes 3D gaming and movies to the next level. There are a number of BR headsets out there in the market, but Rift is available for you merely on the cost of $300, a price that everyone can afford. While we're leading, it will take a few years more to experience the true level of realism. Oculus Rift is the first step towards that goal.
4. Leap Motion
After the failure of multi-touch desktop due to the fact that hands get tired with prolonged use, now the Leap Motion is the new technology in the virtual world. Leap motion makes you able to use your hands directly in the virtual world and augmented reality. Now, you can control your desktop with your fingers, without any kind of hassle. The best thing is that you can get into the future with this advanced technology at just $70.
When connected to the Oculus Rift for a real-time gaming experience, the gaming is going to be an out-of-the-box experience.
5. Eye Tribe
There will be one day the direction you look could control your VR or mobile experience thanks to the latest innovation, the Eye Tribe. Eye tracking has been actively discussed by technology enthusiasts throughout these years, but it's really changing to implement. But, Eye Tribe actually did this.
In the current era, the main problem with most of the devices is that they function as a standalone being and it really becomes very tough for tech competitors to connect all the things with each other.
The Smart home industry has truly taken off and smart thing is fast becoming one of the most recognizable names in the Internet Of Things space. This device easily connects all your digital and non-digital things together and making your home smarter than ever. Now control your air conditioner, lights, fans, smart doors, and all the smart gadgets from your mobile device.
Even it is able to mash up and interact with connected things in the physical world like notifying you whos been inside your house, turn off the lights, closing the window all at the cost of $500.
7. Firefox OS
IOS and Android both are great platforms, but they each have their own rules and policies that inhibit the creative efforts of developers. In order to cope up with this problem, Mozilla decided to build a completely new OS from scratch.
Entirely built using HTML5 and other open web standards, Firefox OS is free from the rules and restrictions of existing proprietary platforms. Firefox OS is specially designed to run on limited hardware while offering a decent user experience. Another distinguishing factor of Firefox OS is its openness.
Usually, in other platforms like OS and Android, you're locked into the official app store as the only channel to distribute your own apps. Although, Firefox OS has its own official market called Firefox marketplace which has an approval process you're free to distribute your app outside this store if you want.
Firefox OS devices are not built to serve as a great first smartphone along with competitive pricing. They are built to be an alternative to feature phones so that people using said devices are able to upgrade to a Firefox OS at an affordable cost and get a full smartphone experience in the future.
